My favorite things to cook
I'm not really much of a cook. If it comes in a box I can tear it up! Otherwise, I'm not making any promises LOL! My problem seems to be that everything seems to taste better when someone else makes it! But, I am trying and that has to count for something. I'm mostly looking for recipes that are quick, easy, few ingredients, and not a lot of clean up. And of course healthy as my husband and I need to shrink our waists!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies with my mom. It is a tradition that I'm ashamed to say I have not really started with my daughter yet (well we did decorate together but my friend made the cookies). I think I'm afraid the cookies won't turn out or it's too much for me to take on. Silly really. Ok, it's on my list of New Year's resolutions for next year!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever tried to bake a pie was a pumpkin pecan pie. I cooked it for what seemed like hours and it never set. Then, it ran over the edges and burned in my oven, because I wasn't smart enough to put a cookie sheet under it. So, two pies ruined, a messy oven, and a stinky kitchen!
